SPARK Performance: The Gruffalo – schools show


This delightful and engaging play is adapted from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s award-winning picture book with the same name.

It is the story of a mouse who goes for a walk in
the deep dark wood and meets other animals on the way who are
scared of the Gruffalo!

3 actors play different characters to tell the story.
Acting is fun! And often playing characters quite different to
ourselves can be SO much fun!

The actors in The Gruffalo are having a lot of fun playing roles that
are very different to themselves.

We believe in making our shows accessible for children with additional sensory and learning needs.

A visual story is available for The Gruffalo to help you prepare for your visit to the theatre.

I Wish….. is an exciting collaboration between two internationally renowned South Australian companies – leaders in children’s performance Patch Theatre and boundary-pushing circus company Gravity & Other Myths.

People also have secret ingredients – what could your secret ingredient be? Enter a world of colour and creativity as performers imagine all the things they could be – from an astronaut to a unicorn, and everything in between.

While exploring their feelings and differences on stage, they reveal the magic of individuality. Featuring gravity-defying acrobatics, stunning visuals, and playful humour, I Wish… is an unforgettable live performance experience.

Suitable for all ages.

Shrek The Musical – Sensory Show

This sensory performance of Shrek will include dimmed lights and sound, with the house lights staying on slightly and an opportunity for individuals who prefer spare seats next to them to be accommodated. 

 

Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a side splitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek!

Please note – all seats for the Sensory Show are ‘General Admission’ to allow Front of House staff to allocate seats to patrons as required.
